So today I want to come on here to challenge you to dare to dream big! Lets make this year a good one for you ….
Do you remember as a child, dreaming big. There was nothing too big, no limits, and you could just be anything you wanted. Perhaps you wanted to fly to the moon in a spaceship….. or maybe you wanted to be the first woman president …. a big business magnet with his own fleet of planes. Or you just wanted to live by the beach and surf all day… Basically we dreamed we could be anything, and weren’t held back by the limitations that hold us back as adults. Those dreams were often fobbed off by adults as being unrealistic, or just silly little fantasies , but why? Why should they be silly little fantasies or childish dreams? Just because its not the norm it doesn’t mean to say that its impossible. We all need to find that child within us again as the only thing holding us back from realising our dreams is our self. We are our own worst enemy when we don’t believe in ourselves.
Dream so big it scares you!
Have you heard that saying , If your dreams don’t scare you, then they are not big enough! it is so true.
Everything starts with a dream… Dreaming involves holding tight to a vision of a better life, one of success and abundance and whilst sometimes, getting there may be difficult, we often have to deal with setbacks and failures along the way, but it is definitely worth it. Anyone who’s achieved a big goal knows just how true that statement is. Sadly many of us give up on our dreams and just throw in the towel when the going gets tough. We give up rather than persist through the torment and pain of yet another failure. Dreamers have this unique way of envisioning things deeply enough, almost able to see them right before their very eyes and being able to feel the emotions that go with the vision. And that holds some incredible power. Why? Because thoughts are things. What we think, we become.
Manifest the life of your dreams…
The very thoughts running through your mind can help to manifest the life of your dreams, or draw you closer to your greatest fears. Unfortunately most people don’t realize the incredible power of their thoughts. We go about our lives steeped in one mindset or another, without the clear realization that whatever it is we think about or focus on consistently, we move towards.
We have the power to achieve…
We all have the power to achieve anything lies in our focus. The more you can focus your thoughts on something, the more likely you’ll be able to achieve it. If you focus your mind on the wrong things, then you’ll have a harder time achieving anything in life. Learn how to direct and refine your focus to help guide you in the right direction. If you don’t, you’ll feel at the mercy of the events in your life rather than at the helm of them.
Dare to dream…
So guys, dream big and see those dreams as clearly and vividly as the light of day. Write them out in great detail. Don’t allow other people to discourage you just because your dreams are big. They should be big enough to scare you half to death. That my friends… is when you know you’ve got hold of something worthwhile. When you dare to dream big, you are taking an active role in your life, and you are allowing yourself to experience things as they happen. Make that conscious effort to set the goals, achieve them, and you will see you have a richer experience in life.
Comfort Zone …
However, while your comfort zone can feel great, it is also the place where your big dreams go to die. For someone to dare to dream big, they know they must push themselves beyond their current limits. A Yale study says that stability shuts off the switch to your brain. In other words, when you remain in your comfort zone, your brain stops learning. When you dare to dream big, you are encouraging your brain to imagine ways to accomplish your goal. There is a level of uncertainty that causes you to fear leaving your comfort zone. You are worried about your ability to succeed and whether the journey is worth traveling. You may think, “What if I invest a year into this relationship and find out this person is not right for me?” Or what if you accept that new position, but you don’t like your new boss? All of these thoughts are signs that you are about to leave your comfort zone. Instead of running away from these experiences, try to lean into them.
Use fear to your advantage …
There are two choices in life. You are either living a life of fear or a life of dreams. When you dare to dream big, you are undoubtedly living a life based on your dreams. Your dreams are found in that little voice inside of you that tells you all the amazing things you can do to change the world. The problem most people face is they have another voice in their head telling them all the reasons they cannot live their dream life. This voice is constantly reminding you of all of your mistakes and all of the reasons success is not possible.
Fear is a powerful tool you can utilize to help you take action. Instead of being afraid of how someone is going to react, be afraid of letting yourself down. Stop thinking about the worst thing that can happen for once and start thinking about the best things that can happen.
Your life is a gift …
Your life is the best gift the universe can give you, so don’t waste it. Be willing to dare to dream big and allow yourself to make mistakes. Things are not always going to go your way, but that doesn’t mean you cannot find a way overcome the
challenges you face. Continue to strive to be a little better each day, and before you know it, you will be everything you thought you could be and more.
